Description

Recounting the life of one of Canada's finest editors, as told by his son, this biography chronicles the highlights of J. Douglas MacFarlane's career, from his legendary coverage of the Marilyn Bell swim of Lake Ontario in 1954 to his handling of the shocking news of JFK's assassination in 1963, to MacFarlane's memorable moments with John Bassett, one of Canada's media icons. A compelling story of a classic "stop the presses" editor, this account will recall a time when headlines were bold and brash, newspapers really "got it first," and readers clamored for the latest edition.

Contributor Notes

Richard MacFarlane is the son of J. Douglas MacFarlane. He holds an MA from the University of Western Ontario and conducted intensive research and interviews across Canada in preparation for his father's biography.
